lions-and-snails:

Over the past 6 months, my ex boyfriend, has been consistently uploading nude images of me online without my consent. They were images that were taken whilst we were together. 

This took various forms, he’d upload them and label them with phrases such as ‘whore’. He created a whole separate profile, pretending to be a young girl called Kimmy, he encouraged men/women to chat sexually with him. 

This ISN’T illegal in the UK and I have no legal way of getting the images removed from the internet.

I’ve spent 6 months asking him repeatedly to remove the images, asking tumblr to take the images down. And he does, tumblr does. But the images keep coming back.

I’m exhausted, I’ve kept it quiet because it’s humiliating to admit to people that this is happening to you.

But I’m NOT keeping quiet any more. This SHOULD be illegal. Posting nude images of me online could lose me my job and could damage future relationships. He should NOT be allowed to get away with this. 

It’s a sex offence and I want the law to recognise that.

PLEASE sign and share this petition. 

I’m drafting a template email for people to email to their MPs, if enough of them raise this with the relevant minister then this issue WILL get discussed in parliament.

It’s ridiculous that this isn’t illegal already, please help me.

I am too intelligent, too demanding, and too resourceful for anyone to be able to take charge of me entirely. No one knows me or loves me completely. I have only myself.

I am awfully greedy; I want everything from life. I want to be a woman and to be a man, to have many friends and to have loneliness, to work much and write good books, to travel and enjoy myself, to be selfish and to be unselfish… You see, it is difficult to get all which I want. And then when I do not succeed I get mad with anger.

Isaac Newton once said:
matter can neither
be created,
nor destroyed.

Every fiber of your being
has a story to tell.
You are an embodiment of
something greater than all of us;
you are made of history,
and you will create the future.

Our bodies are only temporary,
mere placeholders of the
greatness that we will
go on to create.

So when you tell yourself,
“I don’t matter,”
remember this:
you are made of the
very matter that created
the universe.

…the older I get, the more I see how women are described as having gone mad, when what they’ve actually become is knowledgeable and powerful and fucking furious.

I fight Rape Culture because
When I told my ex boyfriend about my rape
He ‘forgave’ me.

I fight Rape Culture because
I saw my baby sister age overnight
As she told me about her best friend getting molested.

I fight Rape Culture because
My closest friend was abused as a child
And he told nobody but me.
It took him 13 years to open up.

I fight Rape Culture because
My friends admit to letting their partners fuck them when they don’t want it
Then laugh it off as typical male behaviour.

I fight Rape Culture because
Saying that you’re raping someone is perfectly acceptable
If you’re playing a video game.

I fight Rape Culture because
Men tell me they are insulted when women walking in front of them start to walk faster.
As if their ego is more important than our safety.

I fight Rape Culture because
If I tell somebody their rape joke isn’t funny
I am told that I’m uptight.

I fight Rape Culture because
It won’t die out
Unless we kill it ourselves.
